I have a wide range of thoughts on this film that I'm struggling to put into words, so excuse me if this is a bit rambly.
Lonergan has maintained a relatively high level for all his films up until now, but if 'Manchester by the Sea' can hit the same wave of success as his earlier films, without either succumbing to high expectations or overflowing with ambition in forced frustration, is one pretty good question.
Obviously with the writing and screenplay being a major force it wasn't necessarily imperative to have completely stellar performances for the film to work, but it's strong performances are what in my opinion is able to take the film to the next level.
